If you could produce a card set for a battle and persuade CBBM to produce a mat this would work really well.

I have been trying to persuade them to complete the Hundred Days campaign by adding Ligny and Wavre to the existing Quare Bras and Waterloo mats.

I think the 1814 6 days campaign/Montmirail would be nice.
Relatively small armies, with mainly Prussians and Russians as French opponents.
Map: for instance here. http://crusaderpublishing.blogspot.nl/p/1814-napoleon-at-bay-campaign.html

First,  I would love to say I love the Blucher system and am working on getting 6mm armies started.

I would like to see an 1806 campaign, maybe followed by the 1807 campaign.  My other choices would be 1808 in Spain with Napoleon's invasion, the 1798 Egyptian Campaign, or the 1796 Italian Campaign.  The last two would be a chance for official Revolutionary period army lists possibly in PDF format, like the downloads for the Waterloo Campaign.

Awesome work, and thanks, Sam.

Hello to all.  I would like to add my three cents worth (given my penchant to wordiness) on new expansion packs.

1) 1806 would be fine, however, (there is always a however) would it be possible to combine two ideas into one. A campaign for 1809, the opening 2-3 weeks, followed by famous battles for  Aspern-Essling and Wagram?
2) Second: a thought on expansion pack for the basic card set.
Santa Sam, after playing a few games, I would like to ask for this as a set for Christmas:

   Polish Infantry       x4
   Polish Cavalry       x4
   Allied Infantry       x8
   Allied Conscript    x4
   Allied Light Cavalry    x8
   Allied Elite Cavalry    x2

   French Light Cavalry   x4
   French Cuirassier   x4
   French Elite      x4
   French Guard Artillery   x3
   
   Prussian Saxon   x12
   Prussian      x7
Total set 64 cards most of which are already in print so this might be doable fitting with the print on demand format?

Side note: got here by:

         Borodino:
         If you add Polish 17th Division and Soyez Bde from the 28th Div +4 (what if)
         4 brigades of Polish Lt Cav plus the 1st Lt Brigade was ½ Polish and
         always round up +4
         Allied Light Cavalry 6 Bde plus I never seem to have enough +8
         Allied Elite Cavalry   Italian Guard; Saxon and Westphalian Heavy  Bde+2

         1809 VII Corps (7-8) Bde plus VIII Corps (3) so +8 Allied Infantry and another                         never seem to have enough
         Allied conscript Infantry (see above) +4
         French Light Cavalry (see above-would have more if not using for Allied Light
                        Cavalry hint hint) +4
         French  Cuirassier there were lots in 1809 +4
         French Elites   +4 Just because (?) there could several at Borodino depending on
                        personal preferences
         Guard Artillery because of their unique ammo numbers x1 of Each Please

         The Saxons because they are not anywhere (although Spanish Infantry and 
         most peoples Curiassier work, and the Prussians because I think I
                        remember someone asked for them.
   
   To all be well

Hi

A vote for the early Napoleon and Italy but with a twist

Go for the 1798-1800 campaign in Italy / Switzerland and have Russians in the Alps - series of contained battles, interesting terrain, characters, colour - revolutionary French, Swiss, Italian and Polish legions v Austrians, Russians, Emigres, Bavarians and Imperial (the Holy Roman Empire). 

Duffy's Eagles over the Alps has plenty of info re OOB etc and Marengo is well covered.

cheers

I like Leftblank's idea of an 1814 campaign. Napoleon getting back to his best but without the resources!
